2 Pure Catskills Guide 2012-2013

BUY FRESH. BUY LOCAL. About us Pure Catskills is a buy local campaign that promotes farm and food businesses in the Catskill Region. Our goal is to increase support of the local food system. This guide is created in collaboration with farmers and purveyors of fresh food across Delaware, Greene, Otsego, Schoharie, Sullivan and Ulster Counties. When farms thrive, our communities benefit in many ways. Why buy local food? IT TASTES BETTER. Food that is grown closer to home is fresher and tastes better. It is better for you. Fresher food has more nutritional value. It creates accountability. Farmers take responsibility for food that they sell directly to consumers who in turn know and trust the source of their food. It supports the local economy. Buying from local farmers ensures that rural farming communities survive.

About our logo Developed from the 1940s era label of the Walton-Hamden Cauliflower Grower’s Cooperative, the Pure Catskills logo is a celebration of our regional heritage. From the 1920s to the 1940s, local cauliflower was shipped in huge quantities via rail and highway to ready metropolitan markets, making the Catskills synonymous with fine quality produce. The image of the logo exemplifies the long tradition of quality products from a working landscape here in the Catskill Region. For more information Visit us online at www.buypurecatskills.com and join our e-mail newsletter list, view extended member listings, find the latest calendar dates, news clippings, maps and sign up for next year’s guide. Direct questions about Pure Catskills to Challey Comer by e-mail at ccomer@nycwatershed.org or by phone at (607) 865-7090, ext. 217.

It protects the environment. Well-managed farms must maintain ecosystems that plants, animals and humans inhabit.

• Support for this project comes from Pure Catskills members and the Watershed Agricultural Council.

It preserves the working landscape. The sustainability of farming prevents unwanted and excessive development.

• Pure Catskills is an economic initiative of the Watershed Agricultural Council. The Council is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the economic viability of agriculture and forestry through the protection of water quality and the promotion of land conservation in the New York City watershed region. The Council is funded by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other public, foundation, and private sources.

It is part of our culture. Losing our farmers would compromise an essential part of our cultural heritage. It is an investment in the future. This year, our agricultural imports exceeded the value of our exports. A safe food system supports local farmers so that we can feed ourselves for generations to come.


Welcome to the 2012–2013 Pure Catskills Guide to Farm Fresh Products!

TABLE OF CONTENTS

T

he Pure Catskills buy local guide was created in response to a burgeoning interest among our neighbors to purchase food directly from farmers. As the program enters its tenth year, it is incredible to see how far the local food movement has come. The images in this year's guide are a testament to that growth. Dairy farms have been the backbone of the regional and state agricultural industry for centuries. This year's guide features value-added dairy producers. These farms offer just about any dairy product you could think of: from everyday staples like milk, butter and cheese to ethnic specialties like kefir, gelato and cajeta. Most farmers featured here head multi-generational operations; but the value-added aspects of their businesses are relatively new. Adding processing infrastructure to a farm amounts to taking on an entire additional business. We salute their efforts by featuring their farms, families and products here. Sullivan County based photographer Andy Ryan visited eight Pure Catskills members to capture these images. This was his first project with Pure Catskills, and he greatly enjoyed the chance to explore the region and meet this diverse group of farmers. His wife, Ky, accompanied him on the trip, helping out as an assistant and cow wrangler when necessary. View more of Andy's work at www.andyryanphotography.com. New ventures by many other types of businesses and organizations have also launched since the Pure Catskills campaign started. During the growing season, farmers' markets occur nearly every day of the week, with an increasing number remaining open through the winter season. Community gardens and farm-to-school programs are popping up in hamlets and small cities. Distributors and processing facilities are helping farmers get their products to market. These advances are all a direct result of the support of customers. Change of this kind and magnitude seldom comes to an industry in such short order. Continue to vote with your fork to maintain this positive trend. In this year’s Guide, we’ve added reference icons within each listing to make product identification easier. Beyond the guide listings, you’ll find convenient ways to find the local food you're seeking. We added a series of panels highlighting food trends and groups of producers including community support agriculture, pastured livestock and pick-your-own operations. If you're a visitor to the region, visit the back of the Guide for a calendar of events and a list of tourism activities. For the most current information on local food, visit www.purecatskills.com for the latest events, extended member listings, and additional resources and profiles on our members. Please contact me with any questions regarding Pure Catskills at ccomer@nycwatershed.org or (607) 865-7090.

Lazy Crazy Acres

My family, both maternal and paternal sides, have been farming these mountains for over 150 years. It’s absolutely in my blood. We set out to make a great ice cream that reflects our grazing, all natural farming practices and found out that “crazy” is an apt middle name for our farm. We found that gelato is a better holistic use of our whole milk and now we are New York’s only micro-creamery “cow to cone gelato.” We are just crazy enough to source all our fruits from other small New York farms, scrape every vanilla bean, hand crack every egg and milk the cows! We love this farm, our cows and these mountains and our gelato definitely reflects that passion. —Jake and Karen Fairbairn 12 Pure Catskills Guide 2012-2013

Painted Goat Farm In fall 2006, we began with a tent and a chainsaw on a hundred acres just north of the Catskills. Twenty pregnant goats soon followed. We merged our two worlds as a farmer and ethnobotanist along with our mutual passion for the environment. We find endless pleasure and challenge in raising dairy goats and creating cheese from the milk. Mostly influenced by French goat cheeses, our array of sumptuous cheese is uniquely born in our hills. —Ilyssa Berg and Javier Flores

Our Green is Blue EVERY SATURDAY 10AM - 1PM

Ninety percent of New York City’s water supply comes from the Catskills. Over 75% of the Catskills is forested, and forests act as natural filters helping keep New York City’s water clean. Every Pure Catskills wood product is expertly crafted by local artisans. When you purchase wood products from a Pure Catskills business, you promote a strong Catskills economy, help keep forest as forest, and ultimately protect the water quality for nine million people.

Sherman Hill Farmstead We purchased our first dairy goat in 1972 (we named her Heidi, of course). We were active in the Delaware County dairy goat 4-H program for 25 years and shipped our goats milk to a cheese producer for five years. In 1993, we began processing goat's milk cheeses at our farm-based plant. It has been a journey of learning, hard work and family commitment. Would we do it again? Of course. —Linda Smith 58 Pure Catskills Guide 2012-2013

You Can Protect Farmland, Forests and Clean Water

All farms and forest lands located within the New York City Watershed have an impact on water quality. If you own land in the New York City Water Supply Region: Catskill/Delaware Watershed – a 1,597-square-mile area that includes six reservoirs in Delaware, Greene, Schoharie, Sullivan, Ulster counties – and the Croton Watershed – a 375-square mile area across New York’s Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties and Fairfield County, Connecticut, you may be eligible for one of our programs. By using a tailored land management plan on your property, you can help guarantee the high-quality water standards of the New York City drinking water supply. As a landowner, you can: • Plant trees and riparian shrubs to prevent streambank erosion. • Enlist our technical expertise in pasture, cropland and manure management. • Protect water quality by initiating land stewardship on your property. • Qualify for financial assistance to implement conservation practices. • Learn to address the many threats to your forest including deer overpopulation and invasive species. • Promote biodiversity and healthy woodlands through a financially assisted Forest Management Plan.

But you can’t do it alone... Let’s do it together. Call us to find out what you can do to protect our water, farm and forest resources. (607) 865-7790 Catskill/Delaware Watershed (914) 962-6355 Croton Watershed
